An illiterate boy is forcefully married off to a fat but educated girl.



The year is 1995. Prem Prakash Tiwari (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a tenth grade-fail, music enthusiast, and together with his father Chandrabhan Tiwari (Sanjai Mishra), owns a cassette shop in Haridwar. Noticing Prem’s life going haywire, his family plan an arranged marriage for him. They randomly select a girl Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar) from Rishikesh. Prem is all yes for marriage, but his only problem is that the bride is overweight. Nevertheless, marriage happens and soon Sandhya becomes a moving spectacle in the Tiwari house, often teased by her in-laws for being fat. But Sandhya fights back with witty replies, not minding her relationship with the family. She takes care of her own business as an aspiring teacher, although yearning for her husband’s help, relying solely on her sensibility. It only takes her few days to find out that Prem is actually a tenth-grade failure and the marriage, thus based on a lie, happened without his consent. She accepts this fact and moves on, until one night when Prem makes fun of Sandhya in front of his friends. Sandhya packs her bags and leaves for her maternal home. The Tiwari family take this lightly until the day a postman delivers them a divorce notice.
